Company 3 Ice Rescue Drill – Sampson’s Pond - February 7, 2010

Ice rescues are the theme for drills this month and Company 3 had a great day on the ice. Operating the Hovercraft takes considerable skill and practice. Good ice made for a excellent opportunity to practice opening holes for drafting operations. The ice auger makes a perfect hole for a special suction strainer used when drafting sites are frozen over. (Photo’s by 314 Retired, Gerry Farquharson)
